Testing in Sepang gets underway next week

After testing for a select number of teams in Valencia, more MotoGP outfits will head to Sepang next week for the penultimate test of 2006.

The Malaysian circuit, always a popular choice for season-long testing, will play host to the latest 800cc outing with a number of the premier class' "big guns." Colin Edwards will be the Yamaha factory team's representative, with the team still only having the one bike at their disposal. Repsol Honda and Rizla Suzuki will have their complete squadrons on track, alongside the Kawasaki Japanese test team. Toni Elias will have his first ride on the Honda RC212V, although team-mate Marco Melandri will be an absentee owing to his recent arm surgery.

The final test of the preseason takes place in Jerez from the 28th to the 30th of November, after which the teams will take a break until a return to Malaysian soil on the 22nd of January.
